Personally I think it might creep (no pun intended) a bit higher than that. There are enough people who want a 1st (of sorts) to push it closer to $2k (perhaps :? ). But you never know; they might all be on holiday. :D



Puts his own stake in the ground. I might have two 3rd prints for sale in a few days at this rate (hopefully checks bank balance :cry: ).




oh well i put in my max bid and it came up with zip, so there we are - good luck to y'all :)

Sorry!  I doubt if I will be able to hold on for much longer at the rate it is going.

Oh yes indeedy - I agree with whoever here said that in the end it might just go over the $2,000 .

I told Peter that would sucker anyone not familiar with the Lake Geneva printings. :twisted:

Different composition staples... Rust; what rust?



Anyone used to handling stacks of rusty supplements (other than T1st Greyhawks) is working under a totally false premise if trying to compare condition on that basis alone.


Hrm, I suppose if I had a copy I'd have known that.  :oops:  

However, I don't think you can really call the set complete if it doesn't have staple rust...I'm out, guys.  :lol:

I am dead in the water if that is my final bid, its less than a full bid increment. :wink:

Sorry, man, but that's just what this finely tuned predatory machine was hoping to hear.  I've been filing my teeth over night... :twisted:

Man, reading that old thread linked in the auction really brings back fond memories of John, aka aneoth.  Anyone hear from him anymore?  He was fun to have around.

Badmike and I have talked to him several times since he sold his stuff. The last time I spoke to him was about a month ago.  We got together and had some BBQ and just yakked about things.  I know he has been really busy with work.  I tried to get him and Mike to go to GenCon with me but both have things going on this weekend.  I wish I could make it but instead I will be here in Dallas hanging out at the Great American Videogame Expo instead.  Maybe next year... :)

Yes, the carcass is still quite fresh. Having only recently ceased thrashing, nay twitching, its sole movements now are the steady leaking of fresh blood into the salty waters of the north Atlantic. The sharks, hungry after a long, quiet summer of above-average water temperatures and below-average prey abundance, catch the scent from hundreds of miles away. The slow but constant trickling of blood over the next several hours is sure to attract the biggest and hungriest predators as the cute nibbler fish take their tiny bites and swim hurriedly away toward the relative calm of the near-shore waters...

I'm leaving it to Frank, if that's what he's willing to pay. :lol:

Was interested in the set you picked up only really for the books and errata/ref sheets as "spares" (and to further confirm the printing history, of course). ~$730 was already $130 over what I'd really wanted to pay for those.



Have absolutely no interest whatsoever in paying ~$1,500 just for a box which is perhaps 1 1/2 grades better than those I've got!

(And then having to find a replacement set of ref sheets...).



All I can say is that I hope no idiot pops in 10 minutes before the sale ends, sees "1st Edition 1st Printing Woodgrain D&D set" on the top line and bids a crazy price without reading the full description. :D



Enjoy, y'all. :)

David, you're not saying you're out of it, are you?
